Ok, so here's the deal....Jer is a Shakespeare scholar. I know, I know, SURPRISING right? Who knew? Well, I did. It's actually quite sexy, if you must know the truth. Anyway, he graduated from the S.W. Shakespeare Conservatory and just LOVES him some Will.I.AM Shakespeare. ANYTHING to do with the Bard is joy to his soul. So, when he got a phonecall a month ago asking him if he would like a lead part in a show with Southwest Shake, he jumped on that train. He was in a really "bad" spot emotionally at the time, and this was JUST the thing he needed. It's a remount of their fall show Comedy of Errors. They're doing the show at the Biltmore Resort, which is interesting I know, but sort of cool.
The guy on the right is our friend Pete.(I totally stole these pictures off of Petes facebook) One of the funniest guys I've EVER met, and a fantastic actor. He was Jeres best friend in highschool. They figured out this is the first time they've ever been able to be in a show together; and, they're playing "twins." Jere is replacing that guy on the left. He gets to wear a fat suit and dye his facial hair a disgusting shade of red.
Just a shot from the show. Really people, I kid not....it's HI-Larious! Well worth the trip over there.
Why am I tellin you this? Well, because it's the "day of the show y'all." They open tonight and run this weekend and next weekend. So, if you are blessed enough to be in the awesome of Arizona, then by all means, COME SEE THE SHOW! Just go to this website http://www.swshakespeare.org/ and click on the Biltmore link, put in Dromio for the discount code and have a fantastical time. I'll be going tomorrow night, if you want to bask in my glory and all. hahaha Come on, it'll be REAL FUN!
I've decided that now is as good a time as any to begin a fun, new little feature. It will be called:
NAME THAT CELEBRITY
In the course of our time together (Jer and I) we've had the opportunity to see a lot of shows and meet stars (and the term celebrity is rather subjective here, they could just be "famous" to us i guess). And or, just meet some famous people (NOTHING like our friend Danielle, who has really pretty much become best friends with like EVERY star in the world). While going through all my old pics, I came across a bunch of these "star" pics, many I'd forgotten that we had. So, I bore an idea, to put up a pic and see if you can name who is in it. This may only be entertaining to me, and that is OK, it is afterall, MY blog. I'm starting with someone spectacular and TOTALLY easy to guess.
Nope, Jere is NOT the celebrity in this pic. Go ahead, tell me who it is. Try not to be jealous!
Day three of sugarless was a rousing success! I ate some delish popcorn to hold off the sweet tooth tonight.
